Shirley was predeceased by her beloved husband Vernon and her son Noel.

She is survived by her sister Marie Cameron and her daughter Deenna Lougheed.  She was the proud grandmother of Noelle and Matthew, and great grandmother of Noah, Blaine, and Izzac.

‘The silence of snowflakes. The glow of friendship. The joy of memories. The laughter and love of family. My Mom (also known as Shirt Tail).’ We will miss you as you walk your new path.  Love, Deenna
